Understanding the Basics of SEO
In a world where over 90% of online experiences begin with a search engine!Means showing up on the front page of Google can be the deciding factor between a business that’s thriving and one that’s, well, bankrupt.
What is SEO?
Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) is known for the practice of optimising websites in order to achieve higher rankings within certain search engines which would be the main top three that are Google, Bing and Yahoo. Google currently dominates the search engine market with more than 75% of the market share followed by partnered Bing and Yahoo together accounting for roughly 20% of searches online.
Who Needs SEO?
This can be anyone wanting to make money online, but any company that wants to earn money from there business online with minimal costs will need SEO. Now there are other methods to make money online such as paid search such as Pay Per Click (PPC) and Lead Generation, but rarely does it give a return, nor does any other form of online advertising turn a higher return on your investment than good SEO. It’s widely thought that roughly ninety percent of all searches don’t pass the first page or the top 10 rankings of any search engine.
And roughly 80% of all searches don’t pass the top 5 rankings, so the bottom line is if you want your business to also make money online, you need to rank in the top 5 rankings on first page of all three: Google, Bing & Yahoo.

The majority of SEO firms have built their model on providing the same strategies to everyone else with one sole purpose – making themselves money without being accountable to results. We believe that you should hold your SEO Companies accountable, after all you are paying for accountability and an understanding of the services provided. Take a look below on our beliefs on most SEO firms and packages available.
What's wrong with most SEO Firms & Packages?
Many SEO companies offer packages in (Silver, Gold and Platinum) these all provide the same link building services that every other SEO firms are offering, now if every SEO company is practicing the same strategy how will your website outrank others in your industry? That’s it one size fits all packages with no added performance guarantee created for you or the client only ensures profits for those SEO firms that don’t provide you with a chance of success. SEO companies cannot honestly provide ranking guarantees before having the critical information about your website, target keywords, industry, competition and your overall goals.
More than often it’s the business model that fails a large percent of the time and is only possible because people don’t know or understand the details behind Search Engine Optimisation. And if a company provides you with an estimate and/or plan without understanding your business goals then you website will go in the other direction, and so they are most likely a chop-shop reseller or provide an ineffective service(s).
To illustrate, here is an example I would like to share: your website sells luxury cars and SEO recommends that your targeted keyword should be "Luxury Cars", now this keyword phrase is highly competitive without a geographic area target such as "Knightsbridge" and would take hundreds of hours across many months to have a chance at ranking your website. And the cost to rank your website for "Luxury Cars" may be in excess of £4,000/month and you’re not guaranteed a return.
However, if your showroom is located in Knightsbridge and your target keyword is "Luxury Cars Knightsbridge" you have a guaranteed chance of achieving a positive return, this keyword is more targeted, less competitive and will give you a better chance of making some money, and the outlay needed to achieve this ranking may equal to £900/month, this at most be an estimate based on your target keyword search volume, search intent, competition and the current state of your website.
Now ask yourself, how can a SEO company quote you a price or provide a package without understanding these elements?
These SEO companies that sells you a Gold SEO Package for £1,500/month may take years to achieve top ranking for "Luxury Cars" and if say "Luxury Cars" is your target keyword, then you’ll be wasting money for a long time and little chance of success, even if your keyword is "Luxury Cars Knightsbridge" and you sign up for a Gold package for £1,500/month, and you may be unnecessarily paying an extra £600/month.
In either scenarios, the client is not the primary concern. Also to add, be aware of any SEO firm offering cookie-cutter SEO packages that have no performance-based guarantee. And if they are offering performance-based guarantees, then make sure there is a contract clause that holds the SEO provider accountable if they don’t achieve your guaranteed ranking position.
